Sharp Lobed Hepatica

The spring ephemeral wildflowers are picking up steam in the woods finally. Sharp lobed hepatica is on of my favorites. These delicate white-with–a-pinkish-tinge flowers bloom in small groups in lime rich hardwood forests.

Sharp-lobed Hepatica

While out on a wildflower walk up at the Camel’s Hump Nordic Ski Area today, I came across a motherlode of sharp-lobed hepatica. Dozens of blossoms were blooming along the trail, and keeping good company as well with trout lilies, blue cohosh, and spring beauties. I’ve dubbed the place “Wildflower Junction”!
